In this paper, we determine how to minimize energy consumption per information bit in a single link, with the consideration of packet retransmission and overhead. This is achieved by deriving expressions for the optimum target bit error probability and packet length at different transmission distances. Furthermore, the energy consumptions of different modulation schemes are compared over an additive white Gaussian noise (AWGN) channel. Finally, it is shown that the optimum target bit error… CONTINUE READING
